Subject [jira] Commented: (LUCENENET-8) Throwing an exception as a result of a normal situation is extremely bad in .net
Date Wed, 04 Oct 2006 01:42:20 GMT

George Aroush commented on LUCENENET-8:


I am all for making Lucene.Net faster.  At the same time, I want to preserve the compatibility
of Lucene.Net with it's Java version..  If this throw was introduced in the .Net version only,
then I would have made the change, but it's not -- Java Lucene has the same code.

I will post this JIRA issue to the Java mailing list and see what they have to say about it.
 Who knows, they agree that it should be removed.

critical error.

> If this is the case, then the code is horrible. Throwing an exception in .NET is extremely
slow, and should never be thrown as a result of a normal situation. I repeat: "extremely slow"
